Weather Station Project
Create an interactive classroom or science center weather station to report, record, analyze and predict future weather conditions.
Templates and directions with pictures to assemble a classroom weather station are included. Templates come in black and white as well as color. Assemble a basic weather model (temperature and forecast) or complete weather model.
Live near the ocean? The product also includes beach forecast templates to display water temperature and high and low tide.
Use the weather model to:
- track local weather conditions
- compare weather conditions around the globe
- bring weather to life at your science station
- enhance a science fair experiment
The complete weather station should be assembled on a 36x48 inch trifold poster or bulletin board. The basic weather station should be assembled on a 22x28 inch poster board or bulletin board.
Teacher Notes includes the Flesch-Kincaid Score for each reading. The score varies between 2.4 and 5.5 which converts to a CC reading band of 2nd grade and 5th grade. Please view the preview for a complete breakdown of reading difficulty.
